MARC Coalition Welcomes CMS Extension of MSP Reporting Requirements and Clarification of Reporting Thresholds
Date:3/24/2009

BALTIMORE, March 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Medicare Advocacy Recovery Coalition (MARC), a broad-based group advocating for Medicare Secondary Payor reform, today announced its appreciation for the federal extension of the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) reporting requirements for liability and other non-group health claims. By program memorandum, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it was extending implementation of the MSP reporting process by three months, until January 1, 2010, and that it would impose an interim reporting threshold for liability claims of $5,000, below which claims need not be reported into the new system. The Agency's actions respond to several of MARC's major efforts over the past three months to educate CMS on the serious challenges of the data collection instrument for the liability industry, and the Coalition extends it thanks and appreciation to CMS for this most recent clarification.

"We have worked hard to build a cooperative and mutually respectful relationship with CMS," said Katie Fox, co-chair of the MARC Coalition, "and the Agency's actions today demonstrate not only that our message has gotten through, but that CMS has chosen to do the right thing. We appreciate the Agency's action, and look forward to working closely with CMS as the MSP reporting program unfolds." Similarly, Roy Franco, MARC Coalition co-chair noted: "We thank CMS for listening to us -- we appreciate that CMS has recognized the complexities involved in MSP reporting, and has allowed the industry the needed time to implement this new program."

During the past three months, the MARC Coalition has been in close conversation with CMS staff and leadership, as well as with Congress, to ensure that the MSP reporting requirements can be implemented efficiently and sensibly. The Coalition is particularly thankful to those Members of Congress who worked to ensure that the MSP program succeeded.
